The Mackay City Heart: Down town shopping
The Mackay City Heart is the down town shopping area. It has been kept alive by careful planning and landscaping. The tropical atmosphere makes for a pleasant stroll around the many shops and arcades. Casual outdoor alfresco dining can also be enjoyed. Some of the buildings are brightly painted while others display a more heritage look. The Sunday Markets are held every second Sunday. Roads are closed off and there is live music and horse drawn carriage rides etc. as well as lots of craft and food stalls.
What to buy: Clothing boutiques, jewellery stores, shoe shops, pubs, gift shops, cafes..........just browse around and you'll find lots of interesting stores. Pictures coming soon.
What to pay: What ever you choose to spend.
